“Excellent home base for exploring Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is not a fancy hotel, but it is lovely and serene. The owner (Gigi) is a great host. It's a perfect spot from which to explore the Tuscan countryside.

This hotel sits right inside the walled citadel of Monteriggioni with its own parking and charming outdoor area with small pool and breakfast space which was always beautifully set. The entry area is very nicely decorated.The garden was also a good place to catch the late afternoon sun and have a glass of wine.
It is a lovely place to stay a couple of days and use as a base to explore the local area. The village gets very busy during the day but is peaceful to return to for an evening meal in the nearby piazza.
Our room was small but attractive and had a lovely view to the west but sounds from adjoining rooms intruded. The owners daughter is particularly helpful with good English.
Make sure you have clear directions after leaving the motorway as there are no signs due to local rules. Drive up and through the main gateway and across the piazza to the hotel.

My wife and I spend 5 nights at this lovely little hotel withing the walls of Monteriggioni.
The ancient building has been beatifully updated. Our bedroom was spacious and had a great view of the chianti hills. The breakfast was excellent each morning with fresh fruit and a beautiful presenation. No evening meal is served but excellent wine and light snacks are.
The staff was quite gracious with the owners very active and helpful.
Monteriggioni is a short drive from Sienna and less than 2 hours from Florence. We used it as a entral point for day trips throughout Tuscany.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Hotel Monteriggioni in mid-September. The hotel was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We particularly enjoyed the garden with a view of the medieval walls where breakfast is served each day. Owner Michael and everyone there were incredibly helpful and welcoming. We chose the hotel because it is located within the ancient hill town of Monteriggioni, and by staying at the hotel one is allowed to drive into the town and to experience its quiet and mystery after the day visitors are all gone. We dined all 4 nights within the town walls and enjoyed all the restaurants, but the best place there is Il Pozzo. Although many maps don't show it, there is a good and very direct road from Monteriggioni to Castellina in Chianti, making Monteriggioni an excellent base for exploring the Chianti region. We highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is located within the walls of Monteriggioni. The staff/owners are extremely friendly and very helpful. The town is peaceful at the end of the day when all of the tourists have gone home- so you can enjoy a nice dinner in the main square.Unfortunately Il Pozzo was closed for the two nights that we were there, but we ate at the Ristorante Antica Osteria instead. The service was great.

We stayed at the Hotel Monteriggioni for thee nights towards the end of our brief tour of this part of central Tuscany .

The hotel is situated within the small walled and historic town of Montigriggionni , which by any measure makes it an exceptional location . Lots of tourists throughout the day but a strole round the square in the early morning or evening are a delight. Then of course there is the pleasant and secluded garden to retreat to when required .

The hotel is an very good conversion of some old buildings ; the enterior is stylish and polished rather than ousing rustic charm . The room we had was both comfortable and functional rather than cosy .

The hotel provides a good buffet breakfast and there are two good resturants ( we preferred Le Roma ) within a few yards and a number of bars . The owner Luigie is very welcoming and helpful .

Overall , a comfortable and well run hotel from which to explore the area .

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back overlooking the walls.

The perfect balance between comfort, simplicity, elegance, and hospitality. Room was classic traditional Tuscan style (wood pannelled ceiling, chunky dark wood furniture). View over private gardens to the "battlements" of Monteriggioni was lovely. The host was delightful - really friendly and kind. The breakfast was exceptional - real care taken with the selection and display of food Someone had taken the time to arrange beautiful flowers and other extras on each breakfast table. It was obvious that they pay great attendtion to getting the details right whilst creating a very relaxing atmosphere - a difficult combination to get right.
